Honoring Alan Wineman at USNCTAM 2014

The Myers lab had the pleasure to join fellow mechanics colleagues and other former students to honor Alan Wineman in his 50th year of teaching at the University of Michigan at this year’s USNCTAM meeting at MSU. Our work in trying to understand and model the complex collagen remodeling behavior of cervical tissue during pregnancy is directly inspired by Prof. Wineman’s work in scission and crossliking of rubbers. Kudos, Alan, to an amazing career and inspiring so many students!
